The LO that Started It All

I'm not really fond of computers but since I wanted to share with you the scrapbook pages I have been doing for the past 4 years (actually 7 years but it was only in the year 2003 when I got hooked with this craft), I'll give blogging a try. I'm still learning the ropes, edit here, edit there but I know one day this will be easy for me. Let me share with you my first LO using acid free materials entitled Walk with Me . It was my Challenge entry (on-the-spot competition) in the first ever SCRAPFEST in MANILA (Philippines) held last May 2006. Before that, I was not concious of the supplies I used in my pages. Luckily, this LO landed Second Place. I used Chatterbox papers, ribbons, alphabet stickers (DCWV) for my title, and foam shapes from one of the suppliers. The one in the photo is my daughter Dannah.

Journaling reads:
Walk with me my darling daughter Dannah and I'll take you to places you have never been to. Together let us dream. Let me teach you the value of life's simple pleasures. I'd like you to find happiness in them. These are the very things that will make you happy time and again especiallyt during rough times. We may not be able to achieve the grandest of things in this lifetime but if we value simple things, that alone can make us the richest people in terms of experience. I love you
